FMCSA has statutory authority to exempt individuals from the vision requirement if the exemptions granted will not compromise safety.

The comment period ended on June 16, 2010 (75 FR 27621). Discussion of Comments FMCSA received no comments in this proceeding.

ACTION: Invitation for public comments on a requested administrative waiver of the Coastwise Trade Laws for the vessel PALMETTO FLYER. SUMMARY: As authorized by 46 U.S.C. 12121, the Secretary of Transportation, as represented by the Maritime Administration (MARAD), is authorized to grant waivers of the U.S.-build requirement of the coastwise laws under certain circumstances. A request for such a waiver has been received by MARAD. The vessel, and a brief description of the proposed service, is listed below.

Interested parties may comment on the effect this action may have on U.S. vessel builders or businesses in the U.S. that use U.S.-flag vessels. If MARAD determines, in accordance with 46 U.S.C. 12121 and MARAD’s regulations at 46 CFR part 388 (68 FR 23084; April 30, 2003), that the issuance of the waiver will have an unduly adverse effect on a U.S.-vessel builder or a business that uses U.S.-flag vessels in that business, a waiver will not be granted. Comments should refer to the docket number of this notice and the vessel name in order for MARAD to properly consider the comments. E:\FR\FM\06JYN1.SGM 06JYN1
